Redwoods in California

This photo was taken at out campsite in the Del Norte campgrounds in northern California. Our tent was surrounded by these magical trees.

This photo gives new meaning to the concept of hugging a tree.

Man in bliss.

Woodland fairy.

Family in a tree.

Close up version.

Love among the trees. We felt small, but the love felt big.

See how big they are?

Being among the redwoods feels like being a hobbit in Lord of the Rings.

When I am among the redwoods, I feel like everything is okay.

One of the things I was most excited about sharing with our children on this trip was these magnificent trees. Pictures hardly do them justice.

The indoor cat has made a discovery on this journey: I like my nature BIG. Big mountains, big oceans, big sky, big prairies, big trees!


  1. I am so jealous! I want to go.
    I love the last part about the indoor cat's discovery.
    So sad we couldn't hook up this time.
    soon though, soon.

  2. Maybe that rock formation is a small piece of God's brain and the Pearl's are tiny cells exploring the inside of God's cranium!
